Welcome to our Seasonal Collections, this where we bring together our local Ottawa Valley artisans to offer unique one of a kind gifts. The gifts created will be seasonal or holiday based and set up so you can pre-order to have it delivered just before the special occasion. Everything will be made locally and roasted just in time by our artisan partners and delivered right to your door by Bean Around Town.
In order to offer you an exciting line of handmade artisan chocolates, we have partnered with Wabano Fine Chocolates, part of the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health in Ottawa. This is led by Pierrette Vezina, a chocolatier and Wabano Centre volunteer. Pierrette started Wabano Fine Chocolates as the first Indigenous chocolate social enterprise in Canada. This fine chocolate project helps train volunteers in chocolate-making and raises money to support other programs. Pierrette, who is a trained chocolate maker, said it began as a small project to make gifts, but has taken off. Many of the chocolates come with an Aboriginal story about how they tie into their culture.
